They not only found Bashawn Whitted-Scottand Sean Temple, who are tied to a string of burglaries in the area, but they also discovered an alligator in the motel's pool.
Now authorities have discovered the gator was there as a prop in a music video Whitted-Scott and Temple were filming at the hotel. Along with the animal, the duo displayed guns and drugs in the video, which was posted to Facebook.
In the end, Whitted-Scott and Temple face charges including robbery, conspiracy, aggravated assault, conspiracy to make terroristic threats and unlawful possession of a weapon. As for the alligator, he was taken in by animal control and will soon head to an animal reserve outside Tampa Bay.
